Reflexology at County Chiropractic Centre

Rubbing footReflexology is the study of reflexes and is based on the principle that there are reflexes in the body that map to other parts, glands, and organs of the body. Through the application of pressure on these reflexes, reflexology therapy can help to relieve tension, improve circulation, and support the body’s efforts to function optimally. Reflexology can also be utilized during illness, stress, injury, and/or dis-ease, because the body is in a state of “imbalance” and vital body systems can be blocked, which prevents the body from functioning optimally. Reflexology can be used to restore and maintain the body’s natural balance and facilitate healing.

For each person, the application and the effect of the therapy is unique. Sensitive, trained hands can detect tiny deposits and imbalances and by working on these points, the Reflexology Therapist can increase the flow and movement of the body’s vitality. Reflexology can stimulate more than 7,000 different nerve endings in each foot in one single session.

Reflexology is a type of therapy that uses gentle pressure on specific points along your feet (and possibly on your hands or ears) to help you feel better. This eases stress, and that helps your body work better. The way reflexology connects spots on the outside of your body, to the inside, is a bit like acupuncture and acupressure. Reflexology is complementary to medical treatments. It can be done alongside traditional care, but its not an alternative to it, and reflexologists don’t diagnose or treat illnesses. Reflexology can provide much needed relief through working the body reflex that ails you on a part of the body that does not.

Reflexology can help to manage many common ailments such as musculoskeletal pain, insomnia, anxiety, stress, pregnancy related symptoms, and hormonal and digestive issues, just to name a few. Reflexology can safely address chronic pain, lymphatic and blood flow, nervous, endocrine, and digestive system imbalances.

A session usually lasts either 45 or 60 minutes. Reflexology is safe for everyone, although pressure and length of session may vary depending on the person. If you have never received a session, it will begin with a brief health history and an explanation on how Reflexology works and what happens during a session. You will then be placed in a relaxing and comfortable position on a zero-gravity chair. During each session the client is made to feel comfortable and supported, sometimes falling asleep, allowing for deep healing to occur. Reflexology is one of the safest and least invasive alternative therapeutic practices available. You do not have to remove your clothing and it treats the entire body!

I’m So Grateful

Julie has a Big Healer Energy! Her knowledge of anatomy combined with her deep intuition brings a rich awareness of the intricacies of our bodies. I had never tried reflexology before and I am truly amazed at the impact specific pressure points on the feet can have on our bodily systems. I have gone to Julie for several different issues, from digestion, anxiety and fertility. Julie is able to tell exactly what’s going on with me as soon as she examines each foot! Her work has made huge improvements in my digestion, she has been able to calm my central nervous system down, and she even helped get rid of a stubborn ovarian cyst that was with me for over a year! Her abilities are truly magic. I can’t say enough good things about Julie, I recommend her to everyone. I know she has a real gift for healing the body and I’m so grateful to have discovered her! - Aislin O.

Thank you, Julie!

I have been a client of Julie’s for about 3 months now. Ironically she was recommended by a friend. Now I know why! I suffer from Bursitis and Neuropathy in my feet. Of all the medications and treatments I have sought in the last 6 months, Julie’s reflexology has been the only treatment that has made a difference on my day-to-day pain management. I see her on a weekly basis and because of that, the nerves in my feet have calmed down to the point that I can walk my dogs and get through the daily needs of my life in much less pain. Thank you, Julie! - Barb M.
